Still Time To STOP Dow Chemical’s GMO 2-4-D Corn

Dow Chemical is petitioning the USDA for approval of a GMO corn which can be sprayed with 2-4-D, a component in Agent Orange.  PUBLIC COMMENT ENDS ON FEB 29th. 

It is imperative that WE THE PEOPLE speak out on this and spread the word.

As American citizens, we are entitled to have PUBLIC COMMENT on this issue.  Nobody can stop us, threaten  or harass us.

I ask you to PLEASE RETWEET this, e-mail, blog post on Facebook or any other social media.

Why is this important? 

If approved:

  • Groundwater will be contaminated with yet another harmful chemical.
  • It will be IN that corn that you eat & all other foods you buy from the store – because corn is in everything!
  • Beef cattle, chickens, pigs, turkeys will eat this – YOU will eat it too.
  • Contamination will be in immediate areas through wind.
  • HUNDREDS of MILLIONS of acres of corn each year could be sprayed with it.
  • It will wash from the nation’s corn belt into rivers and the seas.
  • Small farmers will be tied to yet another corn seed and chemical
  • Approval will lead to MORE GMO products because USDA sees nothing wrong with them.
  • Corporate entities will have even more control over our lives.
